The History of the Albums – n°256

[I invite you to read my previous reviews on Bob Dylan, you'll find them below, to better understand his life and this one]. Released in 1965, Bringing It All Back Home is one of the emblematic albums of his discography, and not for nothing. Not only is Bringing It All Back Home one of the intermediate albums between two significant periods of his career, the evolution between contemporary Folk and Folk Rock, but on top of that he manages to capture ... read more


Dylan sells his soul to the electric rock devil... half of it at least.
